Newbies walk - up to Mount Vic lookout

  • Aug 18, 2012 · 3:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

New members  -- this one is for you! If you've joined recently, or haven't done this event yet, you can RSVP to this easy-paced late afternoon stroll up Mount Vic and meet some other new faces to Adventure Wellington. Preference will be given to those that have not been on this walk before.

The Plan: We start in front of the Embassy Theatre on Kent Terrace, and walk along Oriental Bay, then up the last part of the Southern Walkway, with great views of the city.

Finally after we make it to the Mount Victoria Lookout we'll have some terrific 360 degree views.

Although the tracks are steep, we would do it on an easy pace with lots of stops to admire the views. The walk will take about two to two and a half hours.

After the walk, those who are interested can come for a customary AW after-event drink, and free platters of food, thanks to one of our great sponsors, The Southern Cross bar!

Difficulty: 2.5/5

Distance: 7 km

Time: 2.5 hours (including 15 minutes at the summit)

What to bring: sturdy shoes, a camera, a good sense of humor, fun attitude, and maybe a walking stick for traversing the steep hills

How to get there: Frequently served by buses (catch a bus going to Courtenay Place) and we will end close to where we started (at the waterfront at Oriental Parade).

    You can't beat Wellington on such a gorgeous day doing the walk up to Mt Vic doing a newbies walk and meeting so many really cool and neat people, and moreso, always fun doing Hacky up the top of Mt Vic and see some newbies get involved :) great day

    Excellent walk. Was really great meeting a group of likeminded, enthusiastic people. The day was a fabulous Wellington day, the weather calm and mild and the view at the summit was totally worth the effort of getting up the hill. Thanks AW :-)
